I lost my boat to go to Isla de los Lobos and I was very disappointed because I really wanted to see the Southern Hemisphere sea lions (wolves) but there are a few around feeding into the fish that fishermen disposed and they are so incredibly amazing. That experience is worth the trip alone. If you add other attractions as... More

Nice visit, good food and good walking distance from other parts of the city. During the summer is hot, take water but you can always buy it around.

Nice port,not suitable to Barbour large cruise ships that are out of the port using smaller tender boats.Plenty of restaurants and remains of the naval battles between the German and British navy during the Second World War

Puerto of punta Del este is a very pretty waterfront full of local bars, cafes where you can just sit and relax with your overpriced cup of coffee or have a lunch. Long beach is stretched along... Sand sculpture of the hand is located a bit further ahead. It is only a few blocks away from the town center. Good... More

The port of Punta del Este is all new since I last visited in 1988...who would ever believe they could do so much so nice so fast! Stop laughing, it was just the other day and I was quite young then. Anyway, visit the port area and enjoy the seafood shops, birds, boats, restaurants, bars and all it has to... More

Heaps of luxurious boats come to this port during summer time. Nice to stroll all around the jetties. Excellent sunsets and nice views at nights. You can buy fresh fish and see the sea lions having fun with the seagulls. Personally this place is very romantic as here my husband proposed me to get married ❤️

This port is very clean, organized, and well appointed. There are restaurants, shops, and fishers cleaning fish right on the dock. The sea lions are always front and centre when the fish are being cleaned!
